Headquartered in Vienna, the public limited company “the Austrian Mint” or “Münze Österreich” has been a well-known coinage manufacturer for a long time. The Austrian Mint does not only produce coins but also stamps and designs them.
Since 2002, the company has also been minting or manufacturing the Austrian euro coins. Vienna Philharmonic, for instance, is one of the popular and precious gold coins in the world.
But by no means, the Golden Philharmonics are the only gold coins that the Münze Österreich issues. In its extensive history, the famous coinage company and its various predecessor institutions have sued plenty of gold coin classics, which have become high in demand for coin collectors and investors.
Manufacturing since 1989, Münze Österreich initially was a part of the Habsburg Empire. The Austrian Mint has a long history of mining and manufacturing many well-known gold coins. Vienna Mint, as one of the quasi-state institutions, issued the golden ducats. Today, the coin company produces gold ducats as reminting.
Precious Coins from Münze Österreich
Münze Österreich offers a wide range of products, including 4- fold gold ducats. Gulden is the issued replica of the famous guilders- trading gold coins. Issued in 1988, they have become the high-demand coins in Austria now. Gold crowns are the commercial gold coins and the main Mint of the Münze Österreich. As they are low price gold and rare items, they are highly in demand.
Münze Österreich also issues gold bars (1 g to 1 kilo) and euro gold coins, which are precious commemorative coins. The current face value of gold coins is 50 to 100 Euros and has a 1 to 1/10 ounce denomination. In a special edition of 2004, there is a giant Vienna Philharmonic. It is 1000 ounces and a collection of 15 coins, each consisting of 31 kilos of pure gold.
